What can I claim for? 

There are two elements of a personal injury claim: general damages, and special damages. 
 
General Damages is a sum of money that compensates you for the Pain, Suffering and Loss of Amenity (how bad your injuries were, how long you took to recover or any long- lasting effects and the effect on your life) sustained because of the Injury. 
 
You can also claim for Special Damages, which is anything else that has come out of your pocket or that has been lost because of the incident or injury. Most commonly, Special Damages include Lost Earnings, Care Costs, Medication or Rehabilitation costs and Damaged Property. In Road Traffic Accidents this can also include vehicle damage and the cost of a replacement vehicle whilst yours is repaired or the pre-accident value of your vehicle is paid to you. 
 
In short, if the incident has caused you to either miss out on something, to not be paid, or to have to pay for something extra, you can generally include this in your claim.
